Winter is here! As colder temperatures strip your skin of moisture, set aside the heavy face creams and re-hydrate with lightweight facial oil. “Mom” has long been a fan of the Mad Hippie line, and this rejuvenating facial oil did not disappoint! Mad Hippie’s Antioxidant Facial Oil is packed with 18 actives, including hydrating argan oil, sea buckthorn berry, pomegranate oil, camu camu berry, blueberry extract, goji berry, raspberry seed extract, and hemp seed extract. “Mom” was delighted that it only takes a few drops to hydrate and bring skin back to life! The lightweight oil is not greasy and has a refreshing scent, as well!

Benefits of Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil include:

Creams vs. oils: Most creams are water based – therefore they will not hold moisture as along as an oil can.

Oily skin: Fight oil with oil, using facial oil will balance out with your skin’s natural oil leaving it healthier and cleaner.

Dry Skin: Let your skin soak up the natural oils and nourish dry spots.

Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil is available at select Whole Foods Markets and online via www.madhippie.com.
